Elmer Smith 6 mile marker! My SGV TNT fellow team member Judy, and me 1/2 way in to our 1st 12 mile run on 1/19/13


I never thought I would be able to run 12 miles


I never thought that I would enjoy exercise


I never thought that I would love being part of a team


I never thought I would be running my 1st 10k race this weekend


I never thought I would meet so many amazing people, with so many amazing stories


I never thought I would be able to say : "I'm training for the L.A. Marathon, and I am loving it!"


I did, I am, I do, I will, I'm thankful, I can :) Go Team!


Thank You so much to ALL who have contributed so far to the LLS through my fundraising page. Your generosity is sincerely appreciated and admired by myself, my fellow TNT team members and everyone you will be helping with your contribution to fight and find cures for blood cancers.

I am currently training for the L.A. Marathon...my very first! I am running with my best friend, Sandra. We are both members of the LSS San Gabriel Valley Team In Training.


We are both attempting to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)--which uses such funding to research cures and treatments for blood cancers. I've met the most incredible group of people with TNT, some of them cancer survivors, some of them family members or friends of those who are currently fighting their battles. Some are running in the memory of others.

I am running for friends and relatives I have lost to cancer, as well as for our family friend Ruthie, who is getting discharged from the hospital today after receiving successful treatment for her Lymphoma! Go Ruthie!! Go Team!!

Also, Not affiliated with this promo or the LLS at all, but it is definitely worth reading: Michael Popp's Tumblr Mike's story was brought to my attention via Doug Johnston's Instagram. I don't know Mike at all, but I was incredibly moved by his experieces. Mike is currently receiving treatment for a very aggressive strain of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Please take a look!

My Fundraising Page

Dear Friends,


Welcome to my Team In Training home page.


I'm running to find a cure! My goal is to complete the Los Angeles Marathon 2013 and raise $1800 at the same time!


It is my time to accomplish something great and to give back at the same time.


I have a mission - to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.


I have many connections to cancer through family and friends and I'm sure so do you.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. Thank You!

    "Thank you Jennifer for supporting such a wonderful organization. My two year old son was recently diagnosed with Retinoblastoma. After losing his right eye, he is now undergoing chemotherapy and then radiation to treat the remaining cancer cells. Since December 10th my husband and I have met several children with Luekemia for they are treated in the same ward as my son. All of these children are the bravest, strongest youngsters you would ever meet. They inspire us so much! Thank you for raising money to help these children and adults with the fight against cancer! My hope is to one day run a marathon and raise money as well! "
